Premiere: OFF feat. Sven Väth – Electrica Salsa (Henrik Schwarz Dub)

Oh boi. The impeccable Henrik Schwarz redubs Sven Väth’s classic ‘Electrica Salsa’ – a truly remarkable feat.

Review: Luca Lozano – Dobb Meep EP

Luca Lozano has a new drop out on Disc Over Music, and it’s sounds pretty out of the ordinary. In a good way though. The concept of Disc Over Music started merely from Tim Green’s visualization of colorful and enthralling records. Shaped by a distinctive approach towards house music, the label reformed sights on the dance floor by mingling with two opposite emotional states of dance music. Their first release conveyed from Tim Green with two originals, along with remixes from Timo Maas & My Favorite Robot. The result? Well, an inspiring record that sets the tone for more to ...
